'Open Kitchen' by Bill Granger
Published in 2003, Bill's Open Kitchen is Bill Granger's third book and he has gone on to write a further four books. Open Kitchen is divided into (mostly) sensible divisions of breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and dessert.
I say 'mostly' sensible as some of the recipes suggested for a lazy weekend lunch would work equally well for a mid-week dinner, though certainly not a mid-week lunch! The afternoon tea/dessert division works. In the afternoon tea section are mostly cakes, whereas the desserts are puddings, or frozen treats.
Each recipe is a whole meal, although I tend to add a salad to every dinner, and is beautifully photographed. The presentation is pretty, and achievable.
I have written a long list of recipes that I want to try from this book - I hope you will all enjoy looking at the results almost as much as G and I enjoy tasting them!
